Where can I take German language classes?
Freie Universität Berlin's Language Center offers pre-semester and summer classes for advanced students. It also has an Center for Independent Language Learning, which is a useful resource. To prepare for the TestDaF or for the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH) German classes can be taken at the Goethe-Institut, at private language schools in Germany, or in the prospective student's home country. Further useful information on German skills are offered on the homepage The German language.
